Fundraising manager (part-time)

As well as paid-for services, The Unity Centre offers many free services to those most in need of physical, emotional, mind and spiritual support. To make these services sustainable, together with our community work in general, we are supported by a range of national, regional and local grants, generous donations and other fundraising.

Karma yogis

At the moment, we’re looking for some great people to join our small, friendly karma yogi team. If you have some free time and you’re interested in your wellbeing, this could be perfect for you!

As one of our karma yogis, you would commit to a regular 2–4 hour slot each week (some time during Mon-Sat), during which you would be asked to greet clients and show them to their treatments, and help us to keep our beautiful community centre looking lovely.

All our karma yogis receive ongoing training which includes the opportunity to enjoy regular floats, saunas, massages and classes! So if you’d like to up your selfcare but can’t afford it right now, this might be a solution.

If the karma yogi role interests you, please complete the form below and we’ll be in touch very soon.

If you’d like to know more, please email Sass or Louise.

“I feel so lucky to have found the Unity Centre and so pleased I applied to become a Karma Yogi. I really enjoy it, it’s so lovely to volunteer with such a lovely team and to feel a part of something. The spa is a calming and beautiful environment to work in. I always feel well supported and have fun while volunteering! I would highly recommend becoming a Karma Yogi. Coming into the spa to help is one of the highlights of my week! And you even earn points every month to use in the spa too.” – Katharine
